Recyclable K-cups?

Previously not a thing, but thanks to Mother Parker’s Eco-cup launch it is now a thing!  There are a few reasons why, in the past, k-cups have been my last resort for steeping tea.  Not being able to recycle the used k-cup was one of the biggest issues. Its seems that this is beginning to change. With Mother Parker’s design, the k-cups will be recyclable as a #6, and it seems that it will also be easier access the tea leaves to compost them. Hooray!

Check out the press release here.

Higgins & Burke tea is currently available in the Eco-cups.  Also, it looks like Numi Tea is planning to use the Mother Parker product for their tea.
